View Logon Statistics

Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

The Get-LogonStatistics cmdlet retrieves logon information so you can view users or services currently connecting to your Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 servers. Logon statistics include information such as user name, logon time, last access time, and client version.

When you run the cmdlet from a Mailbox server, you don't have to use any parameters. In this case, the cmdlet returns the logon statistics for all mailboxes on all databases on the local server.

noteNote:
Users who log on to their mailboxes using Microsoft Office Outlook Web App aren't connected continuously to the Mailbox server. An Outlook Web App client connects to the server, performs tasks, and then disconnects from the server. Therefore, you may see few or no logon statistics for Outlook Web App, even if users are logged on to the client.

Because the Get-LogonStatistics cmdlet provides a quick snapshot of the connections to Exchange at one specific time, you may want to create a script that runs in Windows Task Scheduler to capture additional data, so you can analyze server and database usage over a specified period of time.

noteNote:
Running the Get-LogonStatistics cmdlet too often may significantly affect the CPU load on the Client Access server.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Recipient Provisioning Permissions" section in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

noteNote:
You can't use the EMC to view logon statistics.

This example returns logon statistics for all users connected to the server MBXSVR01.

Get-LogonStatistics -Server MBXSVR01

This example returns logon statistics for a specific user with the SMTP address tony@contoso.com.

Get-LogonStatistics -Identity tony@contoso.com

This example returns logon statistics for all users who reside on the mailbox database MDB01.

Get-LogonStatistics -Database MDB01

This example returns all logon statistics for all processes and mailboxes currently logged on and groups the statistics by the session ID.

Get-LogonStatistics | Group SessionId

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see Get-LogonStatistics.

By default, the Get-LogonStatistics cmdlet returns the UserName, ServerName, LogonTime, and LastAccessTime values for each user or process that has logon statistics. The following table lists the information returned if you pipeline the output of the Get-LogonStatistics cmdlet to the Format-List cmdlet.
